Kids on the Slope's Kodama Ends Tsukikage Baby Manga in 9th Volume
posted on by Alex Mateo
Yuki Kodama launched the manga in the January 2013 issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers manga magazine in November 2012. The omnibus series is set in a small provincial town that has maintained the traditional ways of Japan. The stories follow the human drama among the families there from various points of view.
Kodama's award-winning Sakamichi no Apollon (Kids on the Slope) manga ended in January 2012. The manga inspired a television anime series on Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina programming block in April 2012, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime into several countries as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released the anime on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in North America.
